Iberia workers call off strike action

Iberia workers call off strike action

Workers at Spanish airline Iberia have called off strikes planned for the week of March 18-22, after accepting a proposal tabled by a mediator with the company, a spokesman for the UGT union said on Wednesday.

Iberia accepted the suggestions of a Government appointed mediator, Gregorio Tudela, a professor at Madrid's Autonomous University earlier this week, whilst the Unions did not make an immediate decision on the matter.

Unions representing 95 of Iberia's workforce have signed up to the agreement, the spokesman said.

Staff at Iberia, which along with British Airways is part of International Consolidated Airlines (IAG) , have already staged several strikes in protest at massive job cuts, which have been estimated to have cost the company in excess of 3 Million Euros for each day that strike action has been held.
